An SRV record, which is short for Service record, is a DNS entry employed to outline the servers which run a particular service for a domain. Put simply, you are able to use your domain name not only for a website, but also for an instant messaging server, a video streaming host or even a Voice-Over-IP server, for example, while you still have a site with it. If you create the SRV record, you can pick what Internet Protocol it will employ, on which port the connection to the particular server is going to be established in addition to the priority and the weight of the record assuming that you have a number of SRV records for the very same service. The second option will enable you to employ different machines for load balancing and redundancy. Using this kind of DNS records, you could use the same domain name for a variety of purposes and even with different providers if the same one can't provide all services you need.
